and don't get me wrong, i'm not some gourmet baker who comes up with amazing recipes and always cooks from scratch. i'd like to say that i was, but i just don't have that kind of time. well, maybe now i do because i'm funemployed, but heretofore, being home only 3 days a week didn't warrant much time for leisurely/arduous baking.
for instance, a couple of weeks ago was jesse's 30th birthday. he wanted some glamorously halloween decorated red velvet cupcakes. but i only had 2 hours in which to accomplish the decorating. therefore he got rather plain, yet delicious red velvet cupcakes.
i have never seen cupcakes devoured so fast. it was great. i hate leftover baked goods.
and yesterday the weather was just perfect for baking pumpkin bread, so i fought through my sinus headache and busted it out.
the whole apartment smelled amazing. i sat on the chaise right by the open windows catching the slightly chilled air from the cloudy day while i took in that intoxicating aroma. seriously. oh and it tasted good too. jesse even did it up with some of the leftover cream cheese icing from the cupcakes. he's an innovator.
i can already feel myself ready for more baked goods. but i also don't want to weigh 300 lbs at the end of my funemployment, so i'm going to take it in baby steps. or at least half recipes.
